Write a brief history of the evolution of birds (150-300 words). Such wet-specimens have special value in physiological and anatomical study, apart from providing better quality of DNA for molecular studies. [59] Freeze drying of specimens is another technique that has the advantage of preserving stomach contents and anatomy, although it tends to shrink making it less reliable for morphometrics. [60] [61] The study of birds in the field was helped enormously by improvements in optics.

Type specimens are the best examples of a species at the time a particular species was described. The faculty maintains expertise in ecology and ecosystem studies; genetics, evolution and population biology; fisheries biology and aquaculture; environmental toxicology; and wildlife ecology and management.
